It is believed that Turgut along with 11 associates managed to accumulate almost 350 million Dogecoin costing $119 million from 1,500 people before disappearing.

It has been investigated that the investors were convinced by Turgut V through Zoom calls and at in-person networking meetings at luxury locations, in order to buy Dogecoin and hand them over to invest in mining technology, promising huge returns.
